Christmas Cookies

I have been having trouble getting in the Christmas spirit this year.  The presents are wrapped, and the tree is up.  It did not work. So today I ignored my diet and baked cookies.

From right to left there’s Dishpan cookies from Tom’s mother’s recipe, Snickerdoodles from my mother’s recipe, Peanut Butter Special K cookies from my paternal grandmother, and Swedish Ginger cookies that my maternal grandmother might like.  While I was making these cookies I was thinking about the women in my family making these cookies for the family over the years.  It worked.  I am more in the holiday spirit now.

    What a lovely way to ‘get in the spirit’!

    I haven’t put up my tree or any decorations either. Just too darned busy! Oh well, the SNOW is enough decoration for me…

    I hope you have a WONDERFUL Christmas!

    If sugar doesn’t do it for you then nothing will Donna 🙂
    Happy Holidays!

    Good for you -following your heart (while listening to your head), is most often the way to go. And a cookie or two can only be a good thing. Happy Holidays, and Merry Cookies to you and yours!

    It does seem like it’s been harder to get in the spirit this year. I just haven’t seemed to find time to do the baking. Guess I should quit blogging and start baking! Hope you have a great holiday.
